This year I hadn't planning on making anything pumpkin related. In fact, I had made a list of non-pumpkin fall desserts that I wanted to work on.. but then I opened a really really big can of pumpkin for an oatmeal recipe which only needed a little bit of pumpkin. From then on there was always pumpkin in my fridge because the recipes I would make would never use an entire can, or would require me to open up a new can to supplement the leftovers from the can before thus leaving me with fresh leftovers. It was a vicious, vicious pumpkin shaped, cinnamon scented cycle.
I'm not complaining though, there are worse fates than a kitchen full of pumpkin flavored desserts.
One of my favorites were these sweet, moist, pumpkin spice bites with buttered rum glaze.
